Reviews

'This monograph is particularly timely in the current environment in which the concept of citizenship is the subject of increasing political and ideological conflict and contention. Its well-written essays provide valuable insights about the common and diverse interpretations of social justice expressed by various cultures and faiths. They also make important contributions to our understanding of the implications of social justice for policy and practice by demonstrating how the concept could be applied to such varied fields as education, sports, and children and family services.' - Michael Reisch, Daniel Thursz Distinguished Professor of Social Justice, University of Maryland
